Carla we would both like to say that you helped the day go perfectly and without your assistance I am sure panic would have set in The advice you gave from start to finish also the hands on being a part of our day helped so much as we had met on several occasions Before the actual day that it felt like a friend was helping out with the bar and food. Talking of food we can truthfully say that it was excellent and served to all with ease we all had a great day with a big thank you to yourself and all the staff

By Toni and Bruno, on 29 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Jun 2017

First of all a massive thank you to Carla for organising our day, it went perfectly thanks to you. I knew the Vaults did great food but both the sit down and buffet surpassed all expectations and was wonderful quality. The venue really is beautiful and magical, everyone commented on how gorgeous it was - picture perfect! I think people should learn to trust in you lol I will definitely look to having future events with you as it was so special. I'm sorry but wasn't impressed with DJ but I know that's separate to you. Overall comments from family and friends was how relaxed, special and beautiful a day they had. We can't thank you enough....feel free to look on my fb for any pics u wanna use but if not I will attach a few to this email. Married in candlelight was a dream!

The best wedding guests have ever been to!
Venue Service

By Nicky and Simon, on 29 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 27 May 2017

So many of our guests hadn't heard of The George Vaults in Rochester but so many of our guests will be returning. Our special day was exceptional. Every attention to detail was made. The venue was intimate and quite amazingly beautiful when bathed in candlelight and echoing to the sound of our guests laughing. The outside space was stunning in it's contemporary simplicity, thankfully giving some shelter from the sunshine by a huge canopy of umbrellas. Our wedding planner Carla, was hugely patient and nothing was too much trouble for her. She was with us from the booking date to the end of the wedding day. Thank you so much. One sneaky bit of advice. The Vaults are not easy to photograph well. Choose Chris Deller an amazing photographer who captured our day perfectly. All of the guests were amazed by the quality and choice of the food offered. We had the gold package and I can only recommend it. Both food and drink were plentiful, beautifully presented and impeccably served not to mention extremely tasty. So many of our guests have said that it was the best wedding that they have ever been to and, although biased, we would have to agree. We wouldn't have changed a thing. We had a total of 36 seated for the wedding breakfast and it was the perfect number. 60 in the evening for dancing and yet more food completed the day. We cannot recommend the venue, the staff and the organisation of the day highly enough.

Can't thank Carla and her team, or The George Vaults enough for our most brilliant wedding in April! Carla listened to our wants and needs, and was able to accommodate and work with us so we were able to have just what we wanted. It was very affordable which is always a bonus! We were even able to have Rock Choir, who I sing with, perform on the day and have a rehursals the day before! The food was lovely, especially the sticky toffee pudding, and no end of compliments have been had. The evening buffet was plentiful! The Vault itself was a beauty, and was just how we wanted it, colourful, romantic, mysterious, candle lit and just a bit different! Having the use of so much space in The Vaults ensured that the whole day went smoothly and seamlessly, with everything taken care of. We've been told by many that it was the best wedding they had been to, and we have to agree! We seriously want someone else we know to get married there so we can experience it from the other side!! BEST WEDDING EVER!

I would not have changed a thing!
Venue Service

By Lynn and Iain, on 22 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Sep 2016

What a lovely day we had with your team when we got married in September. I have to say we cannot thank you enough for the effort and attention to detail that you gave our very special day. We knew The George Vaults was where we wanted to begin our life as a married couple, the venue was simply "us". You allowed us to bring our own thoughts to you and you made them come alive, thank you. On the day, our guests were so well looked after by you and your very busy team, always smiling and with a wonderful "can do" attitude. We knew our guests were being well looked after and so we were able to relax and really enjoy the day. The food (such an important part of the event) was lovely, beautifully cooked, deliciously presented and was real value for money. Many of our guests commented about how much they had enjoyed the food. Your suggestions about DJ and photographer were spot on, both of them charming, professional and listened to what we wanted. A memory I will always cherish is just how relaxed Iain and I could be because you guys worked your socks off! I would not have changed a thing. Brilliant. Thank you.

A breath taking venue
Venue Service

By Louise and Michael, on 23 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2016

There aren't words describe how amazing our wedding day went from start to finish. The Vault provided a breath-taking venue that our guests fell in love with instantly, just as we had already. There's something romantic and so very special about the candle lit vault, that you just won't get at a typical wedding venue. Carla and the team got everything spot on - from the running of the day, to the setup of the table decorations just as I had pictured in my head and the of course the delicious wedding breakfast. I wish we could do it all over again!

Our day at The George Vaults was seamless

By Michael and Diane, on 23 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 12 Aug 2016

Our day at The George Vaults was seamless. Carla and her team were very well organised and made everyone feel welcome. The organisation and communication from initially booking the venue until the day itself was stress free. The venue is stunning and we had many positive comments on the day regarding this. We can honestly say that everything on the day was perfect. Lovely venue and excellent staff make a happy Bride, Groom and guests.

The George Vaults was the perfect venue for our we
Venue Service

By Michael and Eleanor, on 23 Mar 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Jul 2016

I cannot rate this venue highly enough! The George Vaults was the perfect venue for our wedding. The character of the vault and the ease of being able to have all our guests in one venue for the ceremony and evening reception was wonderful. The staff at George Vaults were amazing: the help from Carla with planning, the waiters, chefs and the bar staff were all so friendly, helpful and accommodating. We chose canap├ęs, buffet style dinner and evening buffet and all our guests commented on how lovely the food was (perfect for soaking up the copious amounts of wine consumed!). To be able to have the wedding ceremony in such gorgeous surroundings, then head on out to the garden for drinks and up to the Castle for photographs while the vault was set up for our dinner and the dancing was just perfect. We used the DJ recommended by the venue and he was awesome, he played all our requests and gauged the vibe/audience well so that there were always people dancing. Throughout the day, I felt like things went along without a hitch- something that I am sure is only achieved by the amount of hard work put in by the staff! Thanks for making our wedding such a perfect day!

Fabulous and memorable
